Growth and Poverty in Asia: Where Next?

Working papers

Written by John Farrington

Asian countries are leading their own development and can build on this successes by strengthening measures to accelerate poverty reduction. Currently, the world's fastest growing region also contains more than two thirds of the world's poor. Progress towards targets embedded in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is uneven, and, as the September 2005 Millennium Review Summit notes, faster progress is needed if goals are to be achieved, particularly against the 'non-income' MDGs.
